Jen Enderlin’s Top Ten List

15 Apr

Top Ten Reasons Not To Attend A Candle Lighter Meeting

(and the Top Ten Reasons Why You Should)

10)  I don’t know anyone. (We want to get to know you!  Please come!  This is a great way to find a community of friends)

 9)  I don’t want to get roped into too much work. (We promise not to do this!  You can do as little or as much as you want—or nothing at all!  Just come and offer your opinions!)

 8)  I wouldn’t have anything to say.  (Then just come and listen.  You’d be surprised, though, at how much of an opinion you will have!)

7)  I don’t know where the ARC offices are.  (123 Naylon Ave, Livingston, NJ, 07039 and for directions visit:

6)  These meetings last too long.  (We will keep it to a tight agenda, and you can also get up and leave whenever you want.)

5)  There are never any good snacks there.  (The ARC offices have a tasty vending machine!  Plus, someone ALWAYS brings something good to eat!)

4)  You don’t really need me.  Other people will show up.  (On the contrary. We are such a small school that we need all the help we can get, and all the ideas we can find).

3)  I’m tired and I’ve been dealing with kids all day.  (No kids will be at THIS meeting!)

2)  I’m not a “meeting” kind of person.   (Today is the first day of the rest of your life!)

1)  The “Dancing with the Stars” Result Show is on!  (TIVO IT!!!)

Our next Candle Lighter meeting will be on Wednesday, April 20, at 7:30 p.m. at the ARC offices.   We really need you there!  We really, really hope you can make it.
